Phonology - the study of how the sounds of speech are represented in our minds- is one of the core areas of linguistic theory, and is central to the studyof human language. This handbook, first published in 2007, brings together theworld's leading experts in phonology to present the most comprehensive anddetailed overview of the field. Focusing on research and the most influentialtheories, the authors discuss each of the central issues in phonologicaltheory, explore a variety of empirical phenomena, and show how phonologyinteracts with other aspects of language such as syntax, morphology,phonetics, and language acquisition. Providing a one-stop guide to everyaspect of this important field, The Cambridge Handbook of Phonology will serveas an invaluable source of readings for advanced undergraduate and graduatestudents, an informative overview for linguists and a useful starting pointfor anyone beginning phonological research.
